The Pope is disturbed by the fact that today's youth are not as spiritually inclined as they should be, and so he decides to set up a Vatican television station and entice them back into the religion of their ancestors. In order to particularly grab the wandering flock, a priest invites the comedians from "The Other Sunday," an actual comedy program on Italian television, to perform on this new channel. He sets up a show that parodies an over-the-hill transvestite group, the Flagg Sisters, played by themselves. This understandably upsets one of the more eminent Cardinals who tries every means he can to stop the show. Nothing succeeds, and he can only assemble with all the other devout men of God to view the first live broadcast. Worked into the plot are several outrageously incongruous scenes that casually juxtapose the secular and sacred, including God at the wheel of a Fiat - what else would He drive? .

Sure there are other dance films out there, but it all has to do with the cast and Nichola Burley does an amazing job leading the dance crew. 3D or not it will still grab your attention from the start and you have to applaud Max Giwa and Dania Pasquini for their great directing. This British film has spark from the cast and the dance scenes, it's truly one of the better dance films out there. Remember one thing, it might look easy watching it but it takes months to master it.. Again the idea is recycled, but it's more down to earth than the other films i think.

Edith N (nl) wrote: In Soviet Russia, Movie Watches You! It seems to me that part of the burden of being a country that people would want to live in is that you have to deal with people who want to move there. If you set yourself up as a shining light on the hill, you are making yourself a beacon, and people move toward beacons. That's the whole point. Many of the stories of the United States are the stories of immigrants, often from situations we cannot fully understand. It's also true that even within the country, we are migrants. A lot of people move around, living and dying thousands of miles from where they were born. This seems especially noticeable in cities, and indeed, one of the characters in this movie observes that no one in the movie seems to be from New York. Sure, a lot of people also stay in one place, but the history of this country is based on a story of people moving in and then moving around. Vladimir Ivanoff (Robin Williams) is a saxophonist with the Moscow Circus. They are about to take a trip to New York. His best friend, clown Anatoly (Elya Baskin), plans to defect, but Vladimir wants none of it. Only through a complex series of events, when the circus gets half an hour at Bloomingdale's on their way to the airport, Anatoly's failed defection attempt ends with Vladimir's actual defection. At first, he tries to defect to a security officer, Lionel Witherspoon (Cleavant Derricks), who does take him in. He also woos Lucia Lombardo (Maria Conchita Alonso), herself an Italian immigrant in the process of applying for citizenship. Vladimir works to blend in, working a succession of low-level jobs. His relationship with Lucia is threatened by her desire to not only be American but be with an American. Vladimir gets a lawyer, Cuban immigrant Orlando Ramirez (Alejandro Rey), and settles in for the long wait to go through the immigration process for himself. But he still misses Moscow and his family. This is a relatively restrained performance from Robin Williams. Actually, there were several performances like this from him near that same time. He is in a crazy situation, but he is attempting to remain a voice of sanity. He tells Anatoly bluntly that defecting is madness, and it's certainly true that Anatoly seems to be going out of his way to get caught. He tries to reason with his grandfather (Aleksandr Benyaminov) that, if he keeps up with what he's saying and doing, the KGB will come and take him away. Even when he is in the United States, the world around him is full of crazy people, and he's just kind of making his way through it. I think perhaps the reason he is so good at this particular kind of performance is based on the fact that he's so good at being the crazy one in a sane world. It's the contradiction between the two which fuels the best of his comedic performances. There are other factors, but I do think that's one of the most important ones. Another positive to this movie is that he's willing to share the stage. He does not get all the funny lines in this movie--not even all the funniest lines. Lionel is a lot of fun. In fact, Lionel's whole family is pretty entertaining. Lucia is more frustrated than amusing, but she has her moments. They're sharing the screen with Williams, not battling him for it. In general, when it's a battle for the screen, it's his fault. There are some people who just have a lot of presence, and he's one of them. He knows how to tone down and share, but he doesn't always do it. I can't help wondering how much of it is having a good director. He was excellent in [i]Insomnia[/i], with Christopher Nolan riding herd over him. Terry Gilliam has gotten good work out of him. (Oddly, his best movie was directed by a man who has mostly only done music videos.) And of course, these days, his worst comedies seem to be based on putting him in a wacky situation and then making him be even wackier. Yes, and the movie is dated. For one thing, there's the whole thing about how he's defecting from the Soviet Union. I mean, that's pretty dating all by itself. There's a reference to every man in New York's having herpes. (Though the gay characters are still portrayed with a great deal more gentleness and respect than would be seen in [i]Beverly Hills Cop[/i] that same year.) It's probably hard for someone who doesn't actually remember those times to understand that the whole thing about waiting in line for two pairs of shoes that don't actually fit anyone you know was really a thing that people in the Soviet Union did. Early in the film, the line could be for chicken or toilet paper; the woman doesn't know. And for protesting the war in Afghanistan, Leonid (Aleksandr Narodetsky) was sent not to prison but to an insane asylum. I don't know if this movie would have resonance with people who don't remember those days, and I am about the outside edge of age for people who would. Then again, Graham liked it, too.
Al S (ru) wrote: A comic classic. Clint Eastwood is terrific in his first comedy feature with a orangutan who proves to be more than a worthy sidekick. A hilarious and enormously entertaining adventure that`s just a pure blast. A tremendously fun and exciting action-packed comedy. You cant help but love this movie for its humor and heart. It`s nothing but a good time. A true gem that you don't want to miss.
